realities and the disparity between them, namely china's trade surplus and america's deficit. this problem drew similar responses from both candidates. president obama emphasized his record of bringing cases against china to the world trade organization, the wto, while seeking redress for unfair trade practices. governor romney emphasized his plan of levying tariffs against chinese imports to the u.s. if china persists refusing to follow international trade rules. >> question. both president obama's and governor romney's positions on china are they solid and presidential in scope and in content? >>> tim? >> it is silly politics. this is what every politician does. they campaign like pat buchanan, frankly, as a nationalist, and they govern as free traders as internationalists. these guys are not going to wage a trade war in china this is tough talk to win ohio. >> you want to defend yourself. >> i am an economic patriot and economic nationalist and obama is using my phrase. but i believe romney has gotten himself out to a point with this occurrence manipulator he is going to have to follow
balloon the deficit. that's an odd argument for the man who added $5 trillion to the deficit. that's mr. obama. >> the recession added $5 trillion to the deficit that was caused by the previous administration. we also know that romney's policies will increase the debt. massively, immediately. >> but voters believe that obama's will do so much more harm. voters unfortunately are choosing between two men, each of whom are far from perfect, i think that's why you see a lot of -- it's very negative. >> one of whose math will lead to balanced budgets. and one whose math will not. >> change, that was an interesting change in mitt romney's speech this week, he kept talking about big change, you want big change, i can bring you big change. what challengers do it. we heard bill clinton do it. we heard barack obama do it. certainly. the hope and change thing is now benefiting the republicans this time. >> it transcended to their signage. it really is their closing message. >> more than election census, 1980 and 1964, this is about the proper scope and actual confidence of government. it will come

focused on obamacare, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. >> mr. romney's campaign is snapping at the heels of the incumbent president. his campaign organizers say they can and will win, but they can win only if they take the vital swing states of florida, virginia and ohio. anything less than the prospects receive for them. >> this race is very, very close. it may confound pollsters and pundits alike. it's not clear how or if hurricane sandy will affect the results, but i think we can venture this far -- president obama appears to be holding on to a very narrow lead. adam brooks, bbc news, washington. >> bold predictions in a tight race. as adam just reported, no state is more hotly contested than ohio. laura is in cleveland for us tonight at a cleveland market for us tonight, laura. i imagine you've been chatting to shoppers today. what have th

to do with jobs but it does. it relates to debt and deficits which and that is if you're an entrepreneur thinking of risking your live ever life savings to start a business or build a factory, if you think america is on the road to greece or italy or spain, you're less likely to invest in america. and right now we spend a trillion more than we take in. it's bad for the economy. i think it's immoral for us to pass on debt like that to our kids and i will get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] and number five, is to be a champion of small business, help small business grow and thrive. by the way, i didn't study small business alone. i've lived small business. i know how business works and i want to use that experience and that skill to help small businesses across the country. and there are a lot of ways to do that. let me mention just a couple. one relates to our taxes. do you realize that the taxes paid by a small business in america can be as high as 35%, that's the income tax and then if you add other taxes t payroll tax, the state income tax if you have one, real estate

, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so that we can reduce the deficit and make investment in education, research, and guess what? a bunch of folks running for congress at the time said this is going to hurt the economy. this is going to kill job creation. if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates has to be running for president right now. it turns out his bath at their math was just as bad back that as it is now. -- then as it is now. by the end of bill clinton's second term, americans created 23 million new jobs. poverty was doubt and the deficit became the biggest surplus in history. colorado, we know the ideas. we know that our ideas work. we also know those that don't work. eight years after bill clinton left office. his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the result was falling in comes and record deficits and

result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is wha
in their deficit. i think that is terrible because that is one thing that people rely on is the federal government at a time like there. there is a catastrophe for a lot of people. you have a lot of people that have lost everything and they need help. but then you have the republican side that has really denigrated people who need help. they are always talking about people on food stamps, or people taking welfare and denigrating those people. and then you have a lot of callers that call in talking about this person is taking it from us or they should not have it. and you have a lot of people like people that are affected by there storm that are going to need help and i don't know if the federal government is going to be able to come together soon enough to be able to help these people quickly. congress is out and they didn't even do anything about the promise for the drought. so, i think that they just don't care. host: what about privatize iinge response to disaster to make sure that politics and partisan bick bickering doesn't stop or reduce money for responding to disasters? caller: if they are
to -- essentially, you've got to cut discretionary sending, if you're not going to add to the deficit, by a draconian level. you've got to cut it by like 40%, including fema. so, it's impossible to square what we -- again, what we know of his budget plan, since he won't lay them out in detail, and this new statement that, oh, well, of course i'm going to fully fund fema. well, gee, what's he going to say today. of course he loves fema now. but he didn't love it when they were coming up with a budget plan. >> and to eugene's point, if mitt romney thinks he might get some solace from ryan, there's the paul ryan budget, which also slashes any amount, what is it, $23 million from the budget from fema? i mean, again, their actual plans would eviscerate provisions for the kind of plastic surge emergency that this nation is facing today. >> and very shortly, we're going to be discussing whether or not to raise the debt ceiling again. and debt ceilings get pushed out by these kinds of disasters. you know, the new york subway has to be cleared out. the new york subway is not going to pay for t
